Bestop Instatrunk Sub
 
I'm wondering if anyone has put a subwoofer into their Instatrunk and if it is a good idea or if it would sound bad.

And also if it would be possible to put an amp in the in the Instatrunk. Would the tailgate provide enough airflow or should I mount it beneath one of the seats

I built a box that fit inside my instatrunk to hold a 10" sub. I cut a hole in the front of the trunk and bolted the sub to it so it is firing into the back of the rear seat. I bolted the amp to the front of the trunk also and it all sounds pretty good. I still have barely enough room left inside the trunk for my rolled up trail cover so I can leave the top and doors off all summer and not be too worried about the 20% chance of thunderstorms that we have all summer long here.
With the rear seat in you can't see anything so I'm not too worried about someone trying to steal it.

I've got an 8"sub built into an easily removable box. Don't worry, no matter where you put your sub you'll hear it, Jeeps are small.

Could you post some pics of this? I'm about to build a box with 2 8's that must fit under the insta trunk and I'm looking for inspiration.

<- Originally from The Woodlands, now stationed in Georgia, I definately miss this, seems like every time I take the top down here I come back outside from doing something and it's pouring rain.

I have two 10's in the trunk(area), I customized the box so it would fit and bolted a 1"x1" scrap of wood I reinforced with re-bar(drilled the hole, added compious amounts of guerilla glue and vualla) ontop that fits under the lip on the sides so you cant pull them out.

Alice;
I'll try to get some pictures, but I might have to email them to you. I don't have a photo sharing site set up anywhere yet
